The Wanderers Stadium, Pitch Report

The Wanderers Stadium is known to offer a bowlers pitch. The uneven bounce, seam, and pace are expected to help the pacers rule the second Test match. The batters need to be on their toes while batting on the surface. 

The stroke makers should be cautious in their approach and need to give some time to themselves to settle in the middle. The new ball can pose an extra threat for the batters in Johannesburg. 

So far in the game, bowlers from both sides have ruled the match. Both Indian and South African seamers have exploited the conditions to wreak havoc in the game. A similar performance is expected from the pacers on day three as well. 

Weather Forecast

Weather can pose a threat as India will take on South Africa on day three of the second Test match at the Wanderers Stadium. Thunderstorms are expected on day three of the Test match with precipitation chances as high as 50 percent. 

The temperature will be around 28 degrees celsius with humidity and wind speed around 50 percent and 14 km/h. If not a complete washout on day one, the rain can cause a halt in the game for brief periods time and again. 

Despite the high chances of rainfall, the game wasn’t interrupted on day one and day two. The fans and players from both sides will be hoping for smooth conduct of the game on Wednesday, January 05 as well.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

The second Test match between South Africa and India at The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg is observing things at a quick pace. The two teams are halfway through the match within just two days as everything is happening in the bulk.

Runs, wickets, everything is coming in bulk for both the teams. Day one of the match saw South Africa making a solid comeback following a massive defeat in the first match. Proteas restricted India at an average score of 202 runs with Marco Jansen picking four wickets. 

Though the team lost their one wicket on day one only in the form of Aiden Markram, South Africa were hoping for a superlative performance on day two by the skipper Dean Elgar and Keegan Petersen. 

Resuming day two at an overnight score of 35, Petersen and Elgar looked well settled in the middle. The two stitched a partnership of 74 runs and the host were heading towards a big score in their first batting innings.

Everything was working in the favor of the team until India introduced Shardul Thakur into the attack. Thakur was magical on the field as he delivered his best bowling performance in the purest format of the game to date.

The seamer cleaned up both the set batters and gave a much-needed breakthrough to his team. Two wickets weren’t enough for the all-rounder as he ended up with seven wickets. The 30-year-old picked up wickets every time he was called on to bowl and every time the game was slipping from India. 

The magical performance by Shardul resulted in South Africa taking up a lead of just 27 runs after posting 229 runs on the board. As India started their second batting innings late on day two, the fans were hoping for the opening duo of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal to set up the foundation of a big score.

However, both the openers failed to live up to their reputation and left India hanging in the middle. The first wicket for South Africa came in the seventh over only as the skipper KL Rahul nicked off Marco Jansen. 

Following the dismissal of Rahul, Mayank Agarwal looked really good but misread a delivery by Duanne Olivier and walked back to the pavilion after scoring just 23 runs. Not much was expected from the duo of Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane as they are going through a lean patch in their career.

However, playing the last 45 minutes of day two, the two showcased a different brand of cricket. Both Pujara and Rahane were at their aggressive best as they helped India grab a 58-run lead.

India will hope for both the players to continue their fine form on Wednesday also for the team to put up a good total. Playing a good knock is vital for Rahane and Pujara on a personal level also as both the players will be batting to save their careers.

Thus, a cracker of a game is expected to Wednesday also. We predict South Africa to gain momentum by the end of day three and come close to winning the second Test match.

South Africa will resume the second Test against India on day two with an overnight score of 35 for one. The team lost their first wicket early in the innings and thus they will start the second day with Dean Elgar and Keegar Petersen in the middle.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

Following a big defeat against India by 113 runs in the first Test match, South Africa made a solid comeback in the second Test. The hosts are playing a do-or-die match at The Wanderers in Johannesburg.

Day one of the Test match was a productive one for the Proteas as they took a lead over the visiting nation. Hours before the game, the visitors were delta with a massive blow as the skipper Virat Kohli was ruled out of the game with a back injury.

The vice-captain KL Rahul made his captaincy debut on Monday. Rahul won his first toss as an Indian skipper and elected to bat first. India looked mediocre with the willow in the first innings as they failed to answer the difficult questions by the South African bowlers.

India had high expectations from the opening duo of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal after a fine show at Centurion. However, Mayank lost his wicket while playing at 26 runs to Marco Janesan.

After Janesan, Duanne Olivier gave two shocks to India by sending Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane back to the pavilion. The skipper Rahul tried to do some damage control but departed after scoring 50 runs. 

Ravi Ashwin also looked in fine touch with willow as he hammered 46 runs. However, the left-arm pacer Marco Janesan was impressive as he returned with four wickets. Olivier and Kagiso Rabada also caused a lot of damage to the Indian side by picking three wickets each. 

The brilliant performance by the South African pacers saw Indis finishing their first innings at an ordinary score of 202 runs. The South African batters now have the responsibility to continue the momentum gained by the bowlers.

Batting in the second innings towards the end of the day, the host were given their first blow. Mohammed Shami picked the first wicket for India by trapping Aiden Markram in lbw. The visitors had a chance of picking another wicket but Keegan Petersen was dropped by wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant.

Adding to the misery, India’s seamer Mohammed Siraj picked up a hamstring injury and is unlikely to bowl again in the Test match. The responsibility now falls on Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Shardul Thakur to exploit the pitch and cause a collapse of South Africa.

However, it won’t be easy as the skipper Dean Elgar will hope to play a long innings alongside Petersen. We predict South Africa to dominate India on day two of the second Test match.  

South Africa’s Total Runs in 1st Innings

Following the score of 202 runs made by the Indian batters in the first innings, South Africa started on a poor note. The hosts lost their first wicket in the form of Aiden Markram in the fourth over only. Markram gave his wicket to Mohammed Shami when he was playing at seven.

The responsibility now falls on skipper Dean Elgar and Keegan Petersen to stitch a good internship in the middle. At Stumps on day one, the Proteas were reeling at 35 runs. The team is expected to put up a good performance on day two to take a lead.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

Team India has established itself as the best Test team of the present times. Virat Kohli’s side started 2021 with a scintillating victory over Australia in the four-match series by 2-1. Following the Australia series, India outplayed England in a home four-match series by 3-0. India’s next assignment also came against England as they toured the latter for a five-match Test series. Only four matches were possible due to the Covid-19 pandemic and India ended up winning two while losing just one game.

The side then defeated New Zealand in a home Test series by 1-0. After hammering Australia, England, and New Zealand, Virat Kohli’s focus is on winning South Africa. India is yet to win a Test series in the Proteas nation. 

The team laid a strong foundation for creating history as they won the first Test match by a massive 113 runs. India were absolutely spectacular in their first Test of the three-match series in Centurion as they took a 1-0 lead.

KL Rahul was the standout performer for the team as he slammed 123 runs in the first innings to take India to a big score of 327 runs. In reply, South Africa ended up with only 197 runs as Mohammed Shami picked up a five-wicket haul.

South African bowlers delivered a better performance in their second innings as they stopped India at 174. However, the batters couldn’t extend support to their bowlers as they were bundled out for 191 runs. 

Heading into the second Test at the Wanderers in Johannesburg on the back of a big victory, India will hope to pull off another win to get done with the series. The seamers including Shami, Mohammed Siraj, and Jaspirt Bumrah will have to be at their best for the visitors to create history.

Further, India will start the match as overwhelming favorites. The team has enjoyed massive success at The Wanderers Stadium. The team has never lost a Test match on the venue. While playing in Johannesburg, India won two matches while their games ended in a draw. 

Though India will start as favorites, South Africa are still the home side. They have the resources and talent to cause a comeback into the series. Though the team will be missing the services of wicketkeeper-batter Quinton de Kock, they will welcome Duanne Olivier back into the squad. 

Looking at the squad and the team composition, we can say that India will have an upper hand in the second Test match. We predict India to win the game to take an unmissable lead in the three-match series. 

India’s Total in First Ten Overs

Team India is enjoying some massive luck in terms of their opening pair especially in the purest format of the game. The duo of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal did wonders for the team in the first Test and hasn’t let the team miss Rohit Sharma who was ruled out of the tour due to injury. 

In India’s first batting innings at Centurion, Rahul and Mayank stitched a partnership of 117 runs in the middle to give India a dream start. Another cracker of performance is expected from the openers on Monday too. 

It is safe to believe that India will be able to score over 21.5 overs in their first ten overs. Both the openers are in a good form and will aim to give India another fine start.

The overcast conditions at the SuperSport Park in Centurion suggest another fine day at the office for the bowlers. The pitch has been producing extra pace and uneven bounce to the seamers that has made the job of the batters difficult.

Thus, it will take some effort from the South African bowlers to survive against the Indian seamers and save the game. 

Weather Forecast

Though a result seems likely in the first Test match between India and South Africa, rain can play the spoilsport. There are again chances of rain disrupting the game and causing a complete washout on day five. The precipitation chances are around 60 percent.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

Day four was a terrific day for India in all aspects. The visitors have taken a massive lead in the first Test and will hope to continue the fine performance on the last day as well to clinch the game. At present South Africa is reeling at 94 for four in their second batting innings.

Batting in the first innings, India posted a massive score of 327 runs in 105.3 overs. KL Rahul was the wrecker-in-chief for India as he slammed 123 runs while facing 260 deliveries in the middle.

Following the score, South Africa ended up with 197 runs. Temba Bavuma was the top scorer with 52 runs. The credit also goes to the Indian seamers especially Mohammed Shami to cause a collapse of the opposition’s batting line-up.

The third innings again saw India making a good start with the bat. No Indian batter could score even 35 runs as South Africa bowlers delivered a statement performance. Kagiso Rabada and Marco Jansen were the highest wicket-takers with four wickets each.

Though India wasn’t good with the willow in their second batting innings, they have been successful in giving South Africa a massive target of 305 runs. With a good target to chase, South Africa fell to a poor start. They lost their four wickets while scoring 94 runs in 40.5 overs.

India now needs six more wickets while South Africa have to score 211 runs more to win the match. Though the match can go in any direction, the chances of India winning the match are more. We predict the visitors to win the game and take a 1-0 lead in the series.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

After three days of play in the first Test match at the SuperSport Park in Centurion, India are deemed as the favorites to win the game. Virat Kohli-led side can win their fourth Test match on the South Africa soil and take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

The first day of the Test match saw complete domination by the Indian batters. Classy KL Rahul hammered 123 runs to help India take lead. India ended the first day at a score of 272 for three with Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane in the middle. 

There was no play on the second day as the rain played the spoilsport. Following a complete washout of day two, India witnessed a collapse of their batting line-up. South African bowlers made a comeback in the match as they dismissed seven Indian batters within 49 runs. 

India were bowled out for 327 runs in their first batting innings as Lungi Ngidi took a six-wicket haul. South Africa couldn’t make use of the momentum gained by their bowlers as they struggled against the Indian seamers.

South Africa were folded at a score of 197 runs after batting for 62.3 overs in their first batting innings. Mohammed Shami was brilliant with the ball as picked up a five-wicket haul. Jasprit Bumrah and Shardul Thakur scalped two wickets each while Mohammed Siraj picked one. 

The exploits by the Indian seamer helped the team in taking up a lead of 130 runs. The visitors will be resuming day four with an overnight score of 16 for one. They will hope to make their lead big to win the first Test.

South Africa, on the other hand, should aim to make a comeback in the Test match and continue their brilliant record against India in the purest format of the game. We predict India to shine on day four and increase their chances of winning the first Test. 

India’s First 10 Overs Total. Innings #2

India batted for six overs in their second batting innings on day three. The team lost one wicket during the last hour of the game in the form of opening batter Mayank Agarwal. Following the dismissal of Mayank, Shardul Thakur came as the night watchman. 

The visitors will now start the match on day four with an overnight score of 16 for one. KL Rahul is playing at five runs while Shardul scored four runs off five balls. The visitors are likely to score under 26 runs in their first ten overs.

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

Day one of the first Test between India and South Africa was owned by the visitors. India looked in fine touch as they flaunted their class and talent with the bat. Winning the toss, the skipper Virat Kohli elected to bat first. Many were surprised with the decision by the Indian skipper as the SuperSport Park is known for providing something extra to the bowlers.

In addition, the overcast conditions were also expected to provide extra support to the seamers. However, the Indian team completely justified their skipper’s decision. The opening pair of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal were brilliant in the middle.

The two batted together to give India a dream start. Mayank and Rahul stitched a 117-run partnership. Meanwhile, Lungi Ngidi provided the first breakthrough to South Africa as he dismissed Mayank when he was playing at 60 runs.

It was followed by another quick wicket in the form of Cheteshwar Puajara who bagged a golden duck. Rahul continued his exploits on the field as he formed short yet effective partnerships with Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane.

After batting for 90 overs on day one, India scored 273 runs with Rahul and Rahane playing at 122 runs and 40 runs respectively. Day two of the match was spoiled due to rain. Resuming the play on day three, India are expected to bat with the same momentum to post a mammoth score on the board.

Looking at India’s performance on day one, we can say that the chances of India winning the first Test and taking a 1-0 in the series are more.

SuperSport Park, Pitch Report

The pitch at the SuperSport Park traditionally favors the bowlers more. The seamers can enjoy good success in the game early on in both innings. However, as the match progresses, batting becomes easy.

Further, the outfield is lighting at SuperSport Park and thus the batters will get good value for their shot. Overall, seamers will be eager to take the field while the batters need to play carefully. Additionally, the Indian team enjoys massive success on the venue. The team has won two out of their three Test wins in South Arica at the SuperSport Park. 

Weather Forecast

Rain can play spoilsport as India will take on Australia in the highly-anticipated first Test of the three-match series. The weather forecast for day one of the first Test shows scattered showers. Adding to the misery, the precipitation chances are about 50 percent. 

The temperature is likely to be around 25 degrees celsius with wind speed and humidity at 23 km/h and 63 percent.

Betting Tip

Match Prediction for SA vs IND

The Boxing Day Test match will see South Africa playing against India at the SuperSport Park in Centurion. The three-match Test series holds a lot of importance for both the teams and thus the cricket loves can expect a fierce cricket battle. 

Virat Kohli & Co. have enjoyed massive success in the purest format of the game in the recent past. The team defeated Australia in the Border Gavaskar Trophy earlier this year by 2-1. The same was followed by India annihilating England by 3-1 in a home Test series. 

The Indian team then traveled to England for a Test series that saw Virat Kohli’s team winning two out of four Tests while one game ended in a draw. India’s last Test series came against New Zealand in November 2021. India emerged victorious by 1-0 in the two-match Test series. 

Unsurprisingly, India will be buzzing with confidence and will back themselves to script history in South Africa. Notably, India has never won a Test series in South Africa in the history of the game. The team has won just three Test matches so far in the Proteas country. 

India will be hoping to change that and create history during the tour. The team will be without the services of their two main players namely Ravindra Jadeja and Rohit Sharma. KL Rahul has been appointed as a deputy to Virat Kohli in the absence of Rohit while Jayant Yadav replaced Jadeja in the squad. 

South Africa, on the other hand, will aim to continue their splendid record in the home Test matches against India. Though the hosts will be missing the services of their ace seamer Anrich Nortje, they have enough fire in their bowling line-up. 

South Africa’s last Test series resulted in them outclassing Sri Lanka by 1-0 in the two-match series. Further, India’s last tour to South Africa saw the hosts thrashing the Indian side by 2-1 in the three-match Test series. 

The online odds for the first Test match between the two sides suggest a victory for South Africa. The odds are in favor of hosts winning the match and taking a lead of 1-0. 

Toss Winner

The coin can flip in the favor of any of the two skippers between Virat Kohli and Dean Elgar. The odds are equally in favor of both the teams be it India or South Africa when it comes to the toss. Meanwhile, the team winning the toss has enjoyed more success at the SuperSport Park in Centurion. 

The SuperSport Park has hosted a total of 26 Test matches so far. The team bowling first has won 12 matches while the team batting first has won 11 times. The skipper winning the toss should opt to bowl first. 

The pitch report for the surface suggests that the fast bowlers get a lot of assistance from the pitch early in the innings while the surface has something to offer to the batters too as the match progresses. Also, the team winning the toss has opted to bowl first as many as 16 times.
